This life is full of mix and match

Grab anything that you can catch

Hold on  because you never know

What  opportunities  will  show.

It  may not  seem to  be enough

Though often when the going’s tough

There  is a lesson we  need learn

That each of us must  wait our turn !

 

LOFTY THOUGHTS ( 2019 ) 2019/12/04

Now  I  have climbed  the mountain high

And  struggled there to touch  the sky

I  dreamt of  visions I  had  seen

Somewhere  above and  in between

But  all that  time I  found instead

These  lofty thoughts  lived  in my  head !

 

 

LOST VICTORY ( 2019 )

Oh Lord, there is  so much  pain  I feel

It  goes on  and  on,  forever  real

I  cannot  escape its iron  grasp

With   each  breath I  take,  it’s  like  my last.

Sometimes  I think it  would better  be

To  close my  eyes  in lost victory

Because  this needs all  the strength  I’ve  got

One of those   days that  I’d  rather not !

 

 

 

 

 

 

IN HOPE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/03

These  final words  that I recall

“A happy time  was  had by  all”

Too  many conversations  heard

Repeat  the very  selfsame  words.

So  blest  are we  remembering

The  greater joy  families  bring,

The  love and  care that  we receive

Help  all once  more  in hope  believe !

 

 

 

 

 

MY CHOICE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/01

The  winter chill is  moving in

It’s  time to  take it  on the  chin

Unpack  your warmest   set  of clothes

Including  scarf,  gloves,  hat and hose.

Your  best  wool sweater  underneath

And  don’t forget the  holly  wreath

I  spy the  frost on  every bough

The  weather’s  truly  colder now.

Could   use   the warmth  that threatens all

As  per  our  latest  know- it- all

Somehow  I  think it is  a ruse

And  nothing  close to  what I ‘d choose !

 

 

 

 

DOUBTS AND FEARS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/30

Dreams  are part of each one’s life scheme

For  none exists  without  some dream

The  good,   the bad,  the  discontent

Have  dreamt  those that from God  are sent.

The  Good Book  tells  tale after  tale

Of  those  angels  that  are  regaled

The  simplest  babe  while fast  asleep

Reacts  to dreams  the while he  sleeps.

No  one  eludes  reality

Of  this  wide world  of  mystery

Through  which  all fears  do ever  wind,

The  place where  our doubts  are confined !

 

 

WHAT USED TO BE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/29

Oh  for the  days of what  might have been

With  memories of  remember  when,

As  the heart  recalls  the times  we knew

When  children were  as all  children do.

Their  names are tatooed  upon my brain

Like  loving words of an  old refrain

That  tugs on those  chains  of kindness past,

Of  the days  long gone  that did not last !
